Timberwolves Trade Deadline Bonanza Spectacular Extravaganza!!!

Ah, yes, it’s trade deadline season. The time of year when you stare at your phone, refreshing twitter, trying to wade through the convincing fake accounts and random blather of wannabe Wojnarowskis to suss out what the hell is actually happening in the NBA. It’s the time for clearing cap space, future protected (or unprotected) […]

Knicks 118, Wolves 114: More of the Same

The Wolves fell 118-114 to the New York Knicks Friday night and, in many ways, the loss felt all too familiar. Much like in games previous, the Wolves dug themselves into an insurmountable hole due to coming out flat in one frame (Is the first quarter the new second quarter which was the old third […]

Timberwolves 95, Knicks 92 OT: The caterpillar track

The caterpillar track was revolutionary in the business of defense. You can find variations of this technological advancement dating back to the 1770’s with several different inventors trying to revolutionize and patent the continuous track. For forty years, a British politician named Richard Lovell Edgeworth tried to figure out the caterpillar track and came up […]

Previewing Knicks-Wolves with Knickerblogger's Robert Silverman

With the Timberwolves set to square off against the visiting New York Knickerbockers tonight, I exchanged email questions with Knickerblogger‘s Robert Silverman so we could each learn a little more about one another. My responses to his questions are up on Knickerblogger right here, and his to mine are below. For as long as I’ve […]

Timberwolves 106, Knicks 118: I Am the Fun Blame Monster

Hello. My name is Steve and this shit is all my fault.

Timberwolves 94, Knicks 100: Everything Ends

The Timberwolves’ free-throw shooting is occasionally mediocre and often terrible. Their three-point shooting, as has been well-documented in these very pages, is historically awful. So when you’re thinking about the team’s chances on a particular night it’s important to realize: the Wolves, in essence, begin nearly every game in a scoring hole. In order to […]

Corey Brewer, an appreciation

It’s not every day that an opportunity arises to write about the Timberwolves on the main Truehoop page. But today, by virtue of the Wolves’ glancing involvement with Carmelo Anthony, is one of those days. As such, our boy Zach got his pretty face in the lights. Suffice it to say, he was underwhelmed with […]

League source: Wolves land Randolph in Carmelo deal

ESPN is reporting that the Knicks have finally landed Mr. Carmelo Anthony. In exchange, the Knicks have traded almost all of their young players plus Governor’s Island and three scuzzy, bro-infested East Village bars. For us, though, here’s the important part: New York will send Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry to Minnesota as part of […]

Carmelo's ripples reach our shores

As you may have heard, Carmelo Anthony wants to play for the New York Knicks. You may have also heard that, for various reason, consummating this seemingly modest desire has been extraordinarily difficult. Well, it seems our very own Timberwolves may have been pulled into this convoluted narrative. It goes a little something like this […]

Death from above: Suns scorch Timberwolves 128-122

Be honest. You weren’t watching the first quarter. Not when the Knicks and Celitcs were deeply engaged in what has been the game of this young season. Who could turn their attention elsewhere while Amar’e Stoudemire bounded and astounded his way through, around and over our beloved K.G.? Sorry, not this guy. That’s what DVR’s […]
